A common technique used to add depth to a character or as a plot twist
is to create a character with two opposing sides. This typically consists of:
- An "outer" character - who they appear to be to most other characters, and who they usually initially appear to the audience.
- An "inner" character - who the character is revealed to be behind closed doors.
Can be made to surprise the audience with a twist
, to make An Aesop
, as what was initially a subversion of a Deadhorse Trope
, in an effort of Character Development
, or simply for the aestheticism
